I have found this mural last week in Chelsea, New York.
This area is one big explosion of art galleries, street after street, after street.
And there is also a lot of street art in that part of New York.

This mural is made by South African street artist Faith47 and her Chinese husband street sculptor DALeast.
It was the first time they ever made something in New York and the first time they've painted together.
This mural can be found in West 21st street between 10 and 11 Avenue.

I'm linking with Monday Mural
Overview

 I have also found a video of the mural they painted:

  4. If it were not for the video, I wouldn't have realized the scale of this mural. I was hoping there would be a title to give us a clue as to its intention. I went along thinking it was a well executed painterly piece until I saw the baby in twine. That stopped me dead in my tracks. I noticed the line of thread parallels the real wires above. Somehow, that made me feel like it was less macabre. So I decided this must be a future baby the woman is sewing for. A baby that is not yet fully imagined or imaginable. I also realize from the video that the window is real. I imagine you can get some interesting reflections depending on the time of day. The window can be an ever changing thought bubble above the woman's head. Let us know if you find out more about the mural. In the meantime, thank you for continuing to participate in Monday Mural.

  5. I love it! I love her facial expression, the colors add mood. I am from the West Coast (LA) and we have so many street murals done by aspiring artists in the middle of the night.

    Thanks for your visit.

  6. It is really exquisite. I appreciate the video, gives such a nice insight to their techniques, and their partnership. I thought the incorporation of the window into her hair was fascinating, and agree with Oakland Daily - it would be interesting to watch the play of light throughout the day.

  8. The video is amazing to see. I like painting of the woman sewing a lot, but do find the baby ball of twine gives the entire mutal a tinge of sadness.

  11. It is like she is unraveling a life that is not meant to be. I find this sad, too. Yet, very well done.

  13. Until Oakland Daily Photo commented on this mural I was still thinking that I was looking at yarn instead of a baby. Unfortunately I cannot find anything on the internet that explains this mural any further. Neither can I find a title for the right part of the mural. The left part, the baby, is called 'Warm Up', according to the the website of the artist.
